Shabbat Classes
Winter Quarter 2017
(January 7th to March 18th)

Grafted In

Instructor: Pastor Mark McLellan

'Grafted In' will deal with the identity of the Gentiles and their relationship and inclusion with Israel.  This class is for anyone who desires to see how they, as Gentile believers in Yeshua, fit together with the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Discover what it means to be the "wild olive" that has been grafted in to the olive tree of Israel.

The Spring Festivals

Instructor: John H. Bergen

The first volume of GOD'S FESTIVALS IN SCRIPTURE AND HISTORY examines the Spring Feasts of ancient Israel: Passover, Unleavened Bread, First Fruits, and Pentecost. The study shows how these feasts typify the progression leading to the redemptive accomplishments of Christs first and second Advents. These Festivals will deepen your understanding of Yeshua and enhance your worship of God as they bring order and blessing into your life.  They will connect you to Israel past, present, and future.  They are historical, prophetic, and relevant for how we live out our faith in Messiah. Come and join me in a revelatory study of these holy days and holy times.  I am looking forward to seeing you!

Weekly Torah Portion

Instructor: Dr. Randy Craig

Yeshua said that “Man should not live by bread only, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4). All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness (II Tim. 3:16).  When these words were spoken, the scriptures that they referred to were the Hebrew Scriptures, the TANAK, the foundation of which is the Torah.  The Torah is frequently quoted in the apostolic scriptures, New Testament, and, in fact, serves as the foundation of a very large percentage of what were have learned in our journey through the traditional western church. We will be studying the weekly portions that correlate with the Torah Portion that we read in our Shabbat Service.  Our goal is to study to show ourselves approved unto God, rightly dividing the Word of Truth (II Tim 2:15).  Please come join us for this important study of the foundation of our faith.

Text: The Bible (the weekly Torah portion). A Torah reading cycle can be acquired in the office. Messianic calendars can be acquired for a non-taxable donation of $10.00 for members $20.00 for non-members (paid to The Harvest).

Youth Class - Junior and Senior High (ages 12 through 18)

Instructor: Jamie Schmidt

Welcome to Think University
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking”- Albert Einstein

To parents: Are you at ease with the world that awaits your child? Have we simply taught our children what to think without teaching them how to think?
To the young adults: If you are what you eat, then is your character formed by how and what you think?  Have you ever wished that the adults around you would really listen and hear you out?  Have you ever felt frustrated that you are unable to convey your desires, thoughts, and ideas to your family, friends, and teachers?  Would you like to have more influence, stronger arguments, and sounder ideas..  Do you know truth, and can you communicate the truth, even to the staunchest opponent?

Well, we would like to spend this quarter learning how to think critically, how to strengthen your biblical worldview, and apply those truths to everyday matters.  I want to hear your ideas, consider your thoughts and help you lay a foundation on how you think and how you share your ideas and prepare you to influence those around you for the glory of God.  We will discuss truth and how to recognize it, to use wisdom and intellect in forming our ideas. We will learn to welcome and provide wise counsel, we will learn how to use logic, reason, and biblical truths to win arguments and influence people. We will examine everything from pop culture to ancient architecture for hidden symbolism, hidden messages, and the agendas behind these things.   We will put into action steps to take back the culture around us, how to strengthen our ties with one another and how to win the culture war without losing the hearts of our detractors.
